Or something like that. Really, I’m just excited whenever I can combine three of my favorite things into one post. Such is the case with this post actually. Because — are you ready — Ndamukong Suh (favorite thing No. 1) of the Detroit Lions (favorite thing No. 2) decided to take in a Detroit Tigers (favorite thing No. 3) game this afternoon.
Excuse me while my head explodes with excitement!
And lo and behold, the Tigers won! Certainly it had to be because Suh was there. I’m sure it had nothing to do with the fact that Justin Verlander was pitching. Or the fact that he’s now won eight of his last nine starts. Or the fact that he’s superhuman. Nope, it was because Suh was there. Clearly.
Regardless, Verlander was actually the one who hooked Suh up with the tickets.
All week on Twitter Verlander has been trying to get people to vote for Tigers catcher Alex Avila to be a starter in the All-Star Game. Suh helped him out be retweeting the link to vote for Avila, and it seems Verlander repaid Suh by hooking him up with tickets to today’s game.
Not too shabby. Hey, Verlander, what gives? I retweeted your link too. Where the heck are my tickets?
Oh that’s right. I’m not an adorably cute — or frighteningly intimidating, depending on who you ask — defensive tackle with the Detroit Lions. I completely understand how I may have been overlooked here. I forgive you.
Anyway, it does warm my heart when athletes support their city’s fellow athletes. There was so much Detroit goodness in one place today. I shall sleep soundly.
